Manufacturing training program pays off in a promotion for Indiana woman
Pal-Item
Mary Downs has suffered a lot of layoffs. She worked in the steel industry and in a foundry. She worked her way up to supervisor, only to be met with another layoff. When she took a job as a grinder at Primex Plastics in Richmond, Indiana, Downs was determined to work her way into a secure position. She helped on the lines, became a machine assistant, then a floater, a blender and finally, a machine operator. With her determination to better her skills and position, Downs jumped at the chance to participate in Manufacturing Matters, a local technology skills training program for high-demand manufacturing jobs.

The US welding industry is facing a big labor shortage
Business Insider
The welding industry will face a shortage of about 400,000 operators by 2024, according to the American Welding Society. The problem comes from the aging population of the current welding operators and the lack of incoming skilled workers, Compact Equipment reports. The two main ways in which the industry is addressing the problem is through training more operators, requalifying existing employees build their skills, and increasing the productivity of current operators.

The Seattle Globalist

You begin to sweat, your breathing is labored, and your heart races and feels like it’s being squeezed.

A 'Rosie' of our own
Bluefield Daily Telegraph
From having her work inspected by Henry Ford as a riveter to working as a welder on bomber planes, one local woman has worked very meticulously over the years. Irene Rose, 90, of Princeton, West Virginia, received on-the-job training at the Ford Motor Company plant in Michigan. "I was a welder in Ann Arbor, Michigan," Rose said. "So I was taught how to weld — aluminum welding — which is very hard to do. Believe me, if it gets too hot it will drop through and you have to start all over again."
